Re: major problem

Especially if you have Vista or Windows Media Player 11, the firmware upgrade for this device should resolve that problem. If the firmware fails to update, then perform a Repair through Philips Device Manager first, and retry the Firmware Upgrade.

If you find that the GoGear will not load the firmware upgrade, then:
1) Backup all files on the GoGear (Repair will delete all files on your GoGear)
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

You will now be able to load the upgrade

Also, if the Philips Device Manager says that your device is already updated with the latest software, then go to: www. usasupport. philips. com,and enter in your model number, SA5125/37, on the next page select SA5125/37 (not "37B"), on the next page click on software and drives, and click on Firmware Upgrade Software - this will ensure that your player really has been given the most current firmware upgrade

How do i reset my eclipse fit clip plus 8gb device it keeps freezing

That could be a short in your mp3. You should be a small hole somewhere on it that says reset. You would need to get a needle or something that thin and push the button inside the hole and hold it for ten seconds. That should fix your system.

How to Reset a Sansa Clip

The Sansa Clip is a high-quality MP3 player. It holds hundreds of songs and is built for portability. The "clip" allows you to attach it to your clothing or belt while you are working out or on the go. Even the best MP3 players can encounter some problems, and the Sansa Clip is no exception. If your Sansa Clip freezes up and does not respond, you may have to try resetting or reformatting it.

Turn Sansa Clip on. Press the "Menu" (home) button.

Press the bottom of the scroll wheel until you reach the "Settings" screen. Push the center button to choose "Settings."

Scroll down to "Reset All" and select. You'll be asked to confirm the reset. Select "Yes." This option will simply allow you to reset the language and location settings on your Sansa Clip. It will not erase data from the clip. To do a complete factory restore, follow Steps 4 and 5.

In the "Settings" menu, scroll down until you reach "Format" and then select. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to format. Select "Yes."

Wait for the screen to say "Formatting Complete." You have now cleared all the files from your Sansa Clip and reset it to factory settings.
Resetting a Frozen Sansa Clip

Push the power button up and hold it for 20 seconds. Release it, then turn it on again.

Go to the Sansa website and download the "Sansa Firmware Updater."

Select "Run" when the updater installs. (Installation will take less than two minutes.)

Wait for the Sansa Firmware Updater to run through its system test. It will ask you to connect the Sansa Clip to the computer to update your Sansa's software.

Connect the Sansa Clip. Remove it from the computer when instructed. If this process does not unfreeze your Sansa Clip, contact Sansa support at the Sansa Firmware Updater website.

Tips & Warnings

You should download the Sansa Firmware Updater to your computer even if you aren't having a problem with your Sansa. This will ensure that your device software remains up-to-date and free of technical glitches.
Reformatting the Sansa Clip will erase all songs and data on the device. Resetting will simply change your player's settings.

Have a nice day....

Why does my phillips gogear freeze up after a while when i am playing my music on it


what makes an mp3 player freezes, is when you put oo much song in the mp3 player and the memory size of the mp3 player is not too large to carry all the songs you put inside the mp3 player.Or you installed an applications too large for it to carry,

So you can heck and delete some data inside to stop it from freezing again. Or if it has a space for external memory to put more data in it you can transfer some of the data into it to stop the freezing.

Take care.

Ok just fixed mine by pushing pin into reset hole. Hold play button turn zen v back on format player. yes you will lose your data but its better than buying a new mp3 player. download zen firmware update plug player in and update. This problem is caused by a corrupted file so the only way to fix it is full formate.

E-260 freezes when computer is trying to read it in Rhapsody program

I read some of the other post and found that I needed to use Windows Media Player. I had the Rhapsody program on my computer as well. Once I downloaded Windows Media Player I was able to access the files and add and delete songs.

My husband is not a big fan of Media Player. Lets hope I haven't done anything that he will have to fix. :)

Good Luck.

My iriver gets stuck when scrolling through the menu

If your MP3 player freezes to the "on" position and will not power down, take a paperclip (unwound) and press the reset button. This will not hurt your data or MP3 tracks and will restart the MP3.

As for a long term soloution, I will keep looking.

ZENV has firmware problem

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

I hope it won't keep freezing on you after the update.
